A bed between adventures. 

Meet The Team


Hello! I'm Ari, a wandering artist who grew up in the forests of New England. I'm an avid reader,  art maker, experimental cook, and tree climber. I enjoy finding new experiences, adventures, and connections wherever I go, and proving that our hearts are always right. I'm super excited to have The Wanderlust as a stop on my journey of this thing we call life!


Hi I'm Jess and I was born and raised in the lovely state of Colorado! I found my way to the Wanderlust Hostel after graduating with a degree in Biology from Western Colorado University. My days are filled with mountain bike rides and fueled by peanut butter on bananas or honey on pizza crust. When I'm not at the hostel I can be found counting ants and aphids at the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab in Crested Butte ... it sounds nerdy because it is :) 


Hello, I am Megan, nice to meet you!

I am super thankful to call the Wanderlust my home and place of employment this winter, and I’m super excited to meetcha!

You can find me eating sushi in the city market parking lot or wandering on a mountain, I do love to wander a good mountain. I love to play outside, play music, and play word games- I don’t always win, 9 times out of 10. 

The secret to my success? 

3 hours of practice, everyday, I’m on scrabble, words with friends, I’m just saying all the words I know, always getting ready, for the big boggle game in the sky.
